What educators are saying

Great resource! These are very useful for 4th graders who are new to answering text dependent analysis prompts.


These text-dependent analysis sentence starters help students cite text evidence to support their answers. Great for test prep. These mini-posters contain textual evidence writing stems (sentence stems) to help students write constructed response answers to text-based questions, also known as TDA text-dependent analysis.

These mini-posters help students put their thoughts and answers into words as they develop and write quality answers.

Using the RACE or RACES strategy? Perfect! These sentence starters work perfectly with the RACES method of constructed response writing for text-dependent analysis.
